Fitness Together is all about synergy. Specialized in one-on-one training, the center’s certified trainers design fitness programs that unite strength training, cardio routines, and nutrition plans that work together to catalyze weight loss. The plans’ strength-training component, dubbed Aspire 8, fuses resistance training and cross training to build solid core muscles without ever having to tear a phonebook in half. During Cardio Together regimens, the trainers get patrons’ heart rates pumping with a mix of aerobic workouts. Finally, the education-oriented Nutrition Together programs teach patrons how to make more healthy food choices, leading to a lifetime of nutritious eating habits.
Reveal Laser Spa's treatments do what exercise has trouble doing?spot-treat the fat in problem areas. Noninvasive treatments tighten skin and reduce stretch marks with a combination of radio frequency and magnetic pulses. Other treatments, such as ultrasonic-cavitation treatments, shrink fat cells with localized ultrasonic waves while firming skin to ward off cellulite. The noninvasive lasers used in Reveal's i-Lipo treatments do the same. To complement the surgery-free weight-loss treatments, the center beautifies clients with luxurious facials and waxing.
At Great Play, kids are encouraged to break bottles—virtual ones, arranged on virtual shelves—in the center’s Interactive Arena. They are part of a hand-eye coordination game for kids, in which sensors track their “throws” and the computer-generated bottles projected onto the walls fall accordingly. Another version sees kids honing their throwing arms by aiming for an animated strike zone while a simulated crowd cheers.
But regardless of the specific games kids play on any given day in the 3,000-square-foot arena, each activity hews to the play center’s overall goal: to build kids’ motor skills and athletic abilities from an early age. Programs for younger kids focus on fundamentals, such as running, skipping, dodging, and tumbling. Meanwhile, athletic camps for older kids build skillsets that come in handy during pick-up games on the playground or at their first Olympic trials at age 3.
By virtue of its name, Wine & Beer conveys to customers exactly what it sells; but that name doesn?t tell the whole story. Inside, the shop stocks its shelves with red, white, and sparkling wines from small winery's around the globe, as well as more than 100 different kinds of beer. Rather than creating a stack of flash cards during their initial visit, customers can become more familiar with the shop?s inventory simply by attending one of its staff-led tastings. They can also join the Wine & Beer club for exclusive chances to try new arrivals.
Led by owner René Serrate, the team of trainers at U First Fitness emphasizes natural toning techniques that leave clients feeling as good as they look. Certified by national accrediting bodies and well-versed in the intricacies of numerous exercise disciplines, these trainers don't just talk the talk—many of them used the workouts they now teach to get in shape themselves. They specialize in creating custom weight-loss regimens and meal plans centered clean eating and tailored to each client’s personal goals. The plans are comprised of activities such as group and one-on-one fitness training, nutrition counseling, and online coaching, a more effective source of moral support than a trophy etched with “You Tried.”
AllStar's experience, upbeat instructors help pupils hone their gymnastics skills in a constructive learning environment. Depending on their age and experience level, youngsters can enlist in one of four different recreational classes—White Cubs, Silver Cubs, Gym Cubs, or Gym Cats—to study gym safety and practice back-bending maneuvers on modified, kid-friendly equipment. Each session lasts an hour and enhances flexibility, balance, strength, and agility, increasing your child's chances of making it to the Olympics or somersaulting in slow motion off of a truck right before Vin Diesel blows it up with guns. Check the online schedule for specific class times.
